Location and Facilities


Dance by Carly is a beautiful Facility! In our NEW 12,000 sq foot location,  we have 7 studios with 7x8 foot mirrors along a 30 foot wall stretching from floor up. In our incredible soon to come black box theatre, we will hold conventions, events, rental for parties, performances etc.
Custom designed ballet barres that are welded and connected on a 30 foot stretch along the wall. Spring flooring under our beautiful hardwood dance floor, which is standard for high activity dancing. The spring flooring allows the dancers to perform for hours without damage to ankles, knees or feet. Both studios have one to two 6x6 foot viewing windows that are only one sided. They provide the parents, students and their families with plenty of space to watch their children dance, without crowding around the window. These viewing windows are extra mirrors for the dancers in the rooms. Most of the time parents will roll up a chair and work on a computer while observing their children dance. This has made our studio a very safe and comfortable place for dancers and their parents.
We have a kitchen and two spacious bathrooms, vending machines, New Era Martial Arts, Children's Art Theatre. Our afterschool program has a beautiful school like, quiet room that allows our after school teacher and students to do their homework in a library type setting after their dance class.
Personal lockers are provided to all afterschool students. With a dance class everyday, they can keep dance attire at the studio without loosing stuff or forgetting it at home or school.
Our hallways are a spacious 6 feet wide allowing everyone to get where they need to go without crowding hallways.  Dance attire will soon be on sale in our DBC dance shop!
Please call or stop in to have a tour of the studio.
